This week's exclusive podcast celebrates an event that is very close to our hearts: The Wickerman Festival.

The Wickerman Festival happens every year in the beautiful Scottish county of Dumfries and Galloway. has played host to the Bass Camp dance village for the past five years, with guests such as X-press 2, Hot Chip and Danny Rampling gracing the decks.

This year Steve Lawler will headline the '2012 - A Bass Odyssey Tent' and over the weekend he will be joined by Yousef, Crazy P, Sonny Wharton, Jordan Suckley, Ki Creighton, Funkademia DJs, D.O.D, Organic DJs, Dance Lady Dance and this week's podcast musical provider, Ginny Koppenhol. Read more about the Bass Camp line up.

Ginny Koppenhol won the Skiddle resident DJ of the year in 2010, with the prize being a set at the festival alongside Sonny Wharton. She returned last year and will be back this year with her trademark uplifting house sound.

As well as Bass Camp, The Wickerman Festival also has nine other stages, with Scissor Sisters, Texas, The View, Mike Skinner (DJ set) and many many more set to appear. Buy tickets for The Wickerman Festival
